    Just an ad for the new GMC Hummer coming out next month? Apparently it has an offroad 'crab walk' mode where you steer all 4 tires. Kinda looks like an FJ Cruiser mated with a Ridgeline. Weird

    Everything but the driveshaft. B03A - 410
    I've been busy this weekend. DeltaVS Panhard drop kit. Helped to remedy the "boot scooting boogie" feeling when I like to fly over speed bumps. I still have about 500 lbs to add to the rear that will level it out.

    I need to do some tuning on the adjustable upper and lower control arms. At first cut, the driveline is straighter than it's been since I've owned it.

    Pardon the wet. It was covered in mud from last weekend.

    Rock creepers to protect the front of the RLCA. I'm painting them black.

    Personally I would. But you could wait until the next time it rains and see. Should only be a couple months for that to happen right?:laughing:


    Putting new screens in is easy, the rubber seam pulls right out and they sell it at every hardware store. Since you're missing the very front window it's not really gunna matter

    Sounds like another gm mechanical nightmare.


    To be fair, I hear the old quadtrasteer trucks were pretty robust.

    Its black sand pearl with a collection of rock chips, dust, and one random section on the hood i painted flat blcak to see how i liked it :laughing: It really needs some paint love.

    The aluminum panels are recycled bleachers, they fit nice and snug in the C-channel and they're pretty rigid.

    I'm carpenterating a support for the kayak i plan to go to look at tomorrow, which is 14' long. I've got an hour drive on the freeway to get there, so I didn't want 7ish feet of it sticking up above the cab in case I do buy it.

    I need to make some wooden rails for mine when I move. The metal rails the bed came with are so useless. And loud when driving.
